NORINCO VP10 Amphibious Wheeled Armored Personnel Carrier via Defence Blog.
Defence Blog found this little gem (he does good work...you should really check him out) and you're seeing the latest reason for me to be concerned.
For all the talk about previously seen Chinese armor, their personnel carriers/fighting vehicles were somewhat lagging.
It'll probably make it into service before the ACV 1.1 downselect is completed.
What's worse than that?
The Chinese will sell or gift these to potential allies all over the globe. The vaunted Company Landing Team is going to be facing an armored opponent in out of area environments and supporting fires will be 1000 miles and an hour or more away.
